AUBURN VS. ALABAMA
Coach Bear Bryant has done a fine job bringing Alabama back, but that solid Auburn defense, the best in the nation, will be too much for the Crimson Tide. AUBURN.

FLORIDA VS. MIAMI
The Gators have been impressive in their rugged schedule and will be aching to add still one more defeat to Miami's disappointing season. And they will. FLORIDA.

GEORGIA VS. GEORGIA TECH
The Engineers have improved from week to week and never beat themselves. Georgia can score but not enough to beat GEORGIA TECH.

MISSISSIPPI VS. MISSISSIPPI ST.
A close one between traditional rivals. Ole Miss has the better record and more depth up front. MISSISSIPPI.

VANDERBILT VS. TENNESSEE
The Vols are still searching for a consistent tailback to make their single wing go. Vandy has the backs, led by able Quarterback Boyce Smith, to win. VANDERBILT.

ARMY VS. NAVY
This is the NCAA game by NBC-TV, and I'm glad I don't have to pick a winner. Anything can happen when these two old rivals knock heads, but one thing is sure: Army's Caldwell and Navy's Tranchini, two of the East's better passers, will make it a wide-open game.

TCU VS. SMU
A tough one. Don Meredith's passing and running make SMU hard to beat, but TCU's superior line will keep enough pressure on the Mustang quarterback to win. TCU.

OKLAHOMA VS. OKLAHOMA ST.
Inexperienced at the start, the Sooners have come a long way under the coaching of Bud Wilkinson. State is no match for OKLAHOMA.

USC VS. NOTRE DAME
The Irish can move the ball, even against the big USC line. George Izo's passing will be more than USC can handle. NOTRE DAME.

AIR FORCE VS. COLORADO
Colorado has slipped badly since midseason, and the Falcons are eager to complete their first unbeaten season. Rich Mayo's passing gives the edge to AIR FORCE.
